Speaking after her victory, Osaka said she felt it would be very embarrassing to lose the game under an hour.

She also said it was a tough match for her, adding that she was happy to have had an opportunity to play with Azarenka.

I just thought it would be very embarrassing to lose this in under an hour.

“I always see everyone sort of collapse after match point, but I always think you may injure yourself, so I wanted to do it safely.

“That was a really tough match for me.

“And yes, really inspiring for me because I used to watch Azarenka play here when I was younger.
